Boeing 787 Dreamliner coming to Warsaw!

The world’s most innovative aircraft, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which will be delivered next year to LOT Polish Airlines, will visit Warsaw on June 24, 2011.  The Dreamliner will fly to Warsaw, Poland directly from the Le Bourget air show, where the Dreamliner will be presented in accordance with the timetable prepared by The Boeing Company.

The presentation of the new Dreamliner in Warsaw is an unforgettable event both for our company and for the entire Polish aviation industry. The airport in Warsaw is the first passenger airport in Europe where it will be possible to see this airplane “from our dreams” after its presentation at Le Bourget.  An even more beautiful sight for us will be to see the 787 Dreamliner in the colors of LOT next year – says Marcin Piróg, the CEO of LOT.  We are proud that we can show this modern aircraft to our guests, media and staff. We are looking forward for the next year when our Passenger will be able to experience the uniqueness and the new quality of service of the 787 Dreamliner – addsMarcin Piróg.

The Dreamliner is the most innovative long-haul passenger aircraft and the only one until now whose structure is produced primarily from composite materials.  The newest product of The Boeing Company consumes less fuel than other airplanes, which will result in significant reduction in environmental pollution.  Additionally, the aircraft has a sophisticated noise reduction system in the passenger cabin, improved passenger comfort with bigger windows and overhead storage bins, lower cabin altitude, increased humidity and cleaner air.  Plus, an important fact is that the journey in the Dreamliner on a particular long-haul route will take less time than if this same journey was made onboard another type of airplane in the Dreamliner’s segment, thanks to the airplane’s fast cruising speed.

LOT will be the first carrier in Europe to receive the Dreamliner and expects the delivery of the first Dreamliner in the second quarter of 2012. Four additional Dreamliners will be delivered in 2012 and are expected to be delivered to LOT by the end of 2012.  LOT’s fleet will increase, in total, by eight 787 Dreamliners.
